Hooked on Craft Challenge DT Card #4

Hi there folks, I've not blogged in a while, been poorly bad with the fybro-probably the stress of moving the ageing parents from the family home-although I have still continued my commenting duties for the fabulous Hooked on Craft Challenges!

Speaking of which...the time has come for a new challenge...


My card for this challenge was inspired by my need to create a 'Thank You' card for my next door neighbour, who is a lovely old gent who loves to garden and has been the epitome of a good neighbour this last few weeks and has kept my mahoosive privet hedge under control for me in this bonkers weather we've been having (it's gone berserk!)

Anyhoo, on to my DT card

Well you know me, I'm not big on male cards BUT guys like flowers too, right?!

The stamps, flowers, leaves and pin are available from Hooked on Craft I can tell you that the postage is quick, the last package of DT goodies I had, made it from Oz in 4 days! Quicker that most local post, to say that I was gobsmacked is an understatement :)

The card stock ever... Coredinations, the plaid paper is Joanna Sheen's Pretty Plaids, gems are Paper Cellar and a distress inked sentiment...those along with Karen's fabulous supplies was all I needed to make what I think is a really cute male card! Next door loved it anyway! lol

Just to give you a close up so that you can see the quality, I have to say that the pins are THE best quality that I have ever worked with. Karen makes them herself,the pin itself is heavy duty and  the beads are real glass...and they move! Just can't stop fiddling around with them lol!

Anyhoo peeps, whatcha still doing here? Get on over to the Hooked on Craft Challenges blog and enter!

Thanks for popping over, your comments mean alot to lil ole me!
